Can anyone recommend a good Paleo cookbook? There are several great blogs out there with many recipes (like everyday Paleo), and Performance Menu is great, but I'm wondering if there are any traditional-style cookbooks around.
Nourishing Traditions has a lot of paleo-friendly recipes.
The Garden of Eating (http://www.thegardenofeatingdiet.com/)
Mastering the Art of French Cooking (J Child) isn't paleo per se, but we've made a number of dishes that absolutely qualify and taste incredible
Not a cook book, but cavemanfood.blogspot.com is excellent.
Full Moon Feast is a good one. It's in the Weston Price tradition, so there are grains and legumes, but it is organized by season and tied into traditional foodways. There is an author website at www.wisefoodways.com if you want a flavor of the recipes and philosophy.
There are many, many cookbooks out there based on seasonal Farmer's Market offerings. Just go to your local library, search the catalog for "Farmer's Market cookbook" and find at least a dozen. Same for "Meat Cookbooks" "Fish Cookbooks" etc.
Libraries are great for cookbook browsing. Most cookbooks can be pricey to buy new, and hard to find used. My rule of thumb is if I keep going back to check out the same cookbook over and over, I buy it.
Also, make your own! When you find an online recipe you like, print it out, put it in a clear plastic sheath made for student reports, and put it in a 3-ring binder. Collect all the recipes you really use and like, and voila!---a personalized cookbook.

I have Berardi's Gourmet Nutrition 2.0, although it isn't "Paleo" per se, it does break down recipes into pre or post work out, based on carbs.
Also, Paleo Cook Book is a good little e-grab, and it's the only book I've linked on my blog.
I like Mark's Daily Apple blog for recipes. Cookbooks I like: The Meat Cookbook, and The Garden of Eating. I use a few recipes in The Grain-Free Gourmet, The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, and Nourishing Traditions. I'm sure any of the older cookbooks like Julia Child's have some good recipes. Joy of Cooking has a lot of basic recipes, and I often refer to it when I cook something brand new.
Can't recommend this cookbook one way or the other, but I bookmarked this one a couple of weeks ago after reading an article about native american diet, and thought I would share here.
I have a lot of links to good recipe pages on the Blogs I Follow list--there are a lot of Paleo/Primal bloggers out there that post recipes weekly--and I try to keep up with them.
Also, as people already mentioned. Mark's Daily Apple has good recipes, and Elana's Pantry as well--she follows a Paleo-ish diet. Also Nikki Young's Cookbooks are excellent--she has some really good ideas. The Cordain Paleo site is pretty good, and the paleodiet.com site has a LOT of recipes.
You know, I find myself less and less interested in cookbooks and recipes, and I used to cook a lot.
I now focus on simple preparation of meat and veg. I do use spices and seasonings, but I just don't go to a lot of effort. I find that I really like the way food tastes and that a lot of effort just isn't required.
I don't prepare fruit at all, of course, I just eat it! I have been soaking and crisping my nuts lately, which kind of counts as cooking, I guess.
I probably put most of my cooking effort into making salad dressings.
